Educate, motivate, inspire

When I first arrived in Melbourne, I was appalled to see the the blatant use of plastic bags in supermarkets and coffee cups all over the "most liveable city". Being born and raised in Bangalore, the IT capital of India - also known for being a heavily polluted city which has struggled to manage its waste, I have witnessed my beautiful hometown deteriorate over the last 10 years. However, there seems to be hope as there is a Plastic ban that has been implemented and student bodies in bangalore are volunteering to clean-up the city and have made incredible progress. Having travelled to a few different countries in my time, I have observed one thing in common around the world. That is waste management around the world is considered the responsibility of the government in power and of civic bodies. My step? I intend to spread awareness about the use of plastics and the damage it does through social media channels and by launching a digital social media campaign to STOP the use of plastics once and for all. I intend to start with spreading the message in Monash University and educate and inspire young students to be more conscious about their actions. What we need today is people with well formed minds rather than well educated minds.

Thank you for doing so! And definitely, not using pesticides is so much better for our environment! However, I would like to precise that organic production must be combined to a responsible consumption. When buying organic fruits and veggies try and not look at what the product looks like =) if too small, a bit bruised, or simply not perfect. Having the "food beauty standards" up to supermarket levels, creates a picky consumer, and often organic produce goes to waste because it is not "fake perfect"!

start a scholarship fund

With being privileged to have access to so many resources, I want to connect with people, and start a scholarship fund which enables students to get higher education or even start a sustainable movement within their home country. I hope I can act as the link and make a difference even in one person's life.

teach my colleagues

The company I work with in India, employs a lot of staff which are very capable in their work but lack the skill of speaking English. I will Skype them for an extra hour each week to go over some basic conversations and greetings and teach them accounting to my best ability in English.

I think this is a really nice step, it can be very stressful when moving countries and to take the time to responsibly donate your things is a good action.
